Unlike many of you, I have not seen the recent movie Lone Survivor, but I have read the book by the only survivor of Operation Redwing Marcus Luttrell (with Patrick Robinson). Since a movie rarely measures up to the book because of time constraints, Ill review the more complete story. The book begins with SEAL Team 10 departing Bahrain in the late spring of 2005 aboard a C-130 Hercules bound for Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan. During the long trip across the Persian Gulf and western Indian Ocean through Pakistan airspace into Afghanistan, Luttrell recounts his SEAL experience. Texan Marcus Luttrell joined the Navy in 1999 with the intent to become a SEAL (sea, air, land) Special Forces operator. Both he and his twin brother Morgan spent more than a year preparing for the ultimate BUD/S training before enlisting and attending basic eet training. As soon as that was nished, he was off to Coronado, California and SEAL indoctrination training. Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) is an incredibly difcult and strenuous training program, probably the most rigorous in the world. Even though candidates are prescreened before entry, the dropout rate is incredibly high only one in six including Marcus graduated from Class 228. BUD/S training is seven months long followed by specialist training in things like medical skills and parachuting. Once a new SEAL is assigned to a team, the training continues. In the process, the team becomes incredibly close. Luttrell describes this experience in detail as well as an assignment in Iraq before Team 10s deployment to Afghanistan. Here they learned the tactics used by Taliban ghters in the mountainous Hindu Kush region on the Pakistani border. Soon, they honed in on a murderous leader that Luttrell refers to as Ben Sharmak (actual name Ahmad Shah). He proved to be a tough target to nail down but after numerous false starts, the mission was on. Operation Redwing was an assassination mission targeted against Sharmak. A recon team of four was inserted near the location where intelligence said their target was located. Lieutenant Michael Murphy led the team and his three cohorts were Danny Dietz, Matthew Axelson (Axe), and Marcus Luttrell. Marcus was one of the two snipers in the team. On the side of a mountain above the village where Sharmak was located, there wasnt much cover for the SEALs, but they dug in as best they could. It wasnt long before three goat herders and their ock stumbled on the four. The mission was compromised; they had been discovered. Now, what to do? There were two options: either kill the unarmed men or turn them loose and nd a new position. They decided on the later. Immediately, the goat herders ran, presumably to betray the SEALs location to the Taliban and their leader. Now in a new location, the SEAL team was soon discovered by a band of heavily armed Taliban ghters. The Taliban were coming down to their position from above. Soon re began. The SEALs were heavily outgunned and outmanned by the enemy. When Murphy ordered the SEALs to fall back, they actually fell down the steep slope hundreds of feet. Now they were both wounded from AK-47 automatic weapon re and grenades from RPGs as well as injured from the fall. When Dietzs radio failed to make contact with the SEALs home base, Lieutenant Murphy ran into the open to make a cell phone call. He was successful but severely wounded when he exposed his position. Danny Dietz was the rst to die, succumbing to his sixth wound. Next, Michael Murphy went silent. Marcus and Axe were blasted from their position by a grenade. Luttrell fell down the mountain further. He had lost nearly all of his equipment in the rst fall but miraculously, his M-12 sniper rie was always at hand, permitting him to return re. In the last third of the story, Luttrell describes his rescue by Pashtun villagers who apply the ancient custom of lokhay to care and protect a stranger who falls into their midst. Also included is the downing of a MH47 helicopter rescue mission summoned by Murphys sacricial phone call which costs the lives of 16 special operators. For six days, a vigil grows at the Luttrell family ranch in East Texas for their missing son and teammate. Finally, a rescue mission locates and recovers a grievously wounded but alive SEAL. They also recover their dead brother comrade-in-arms from the mountain as well as the crash site. Among the decorations for their bravery and sacrice, Lieutenant Michael Murphy is posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Lone Survivor is a good read and I recommend it if you want a more complete description of the mission and the dedication that every special operator, but especially the SEALS, exhibit on behalf of their teammates, their country, and each of us.According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year. Nearly one third of female homicides are committed by an intimate partner. The cost of intimate partner violence exceeds 5.8 billion dollars a year. Domestic violence is a serious social issue with violence being communicated, learned and spread from generation to generation. Boys who witness domestic violence are over twice as likely as those who do not to repeat this violence against their intimate partners. It is common for children to witness abuse since 30-60 percent of those who engage in violence against intimate partners also abuse children in the household. Violence against women is a learned phenomenon and just as boys can grow up learning to abuse women so can they also learn not to abuse. It is the responsibility of the community to band together to protect its women and daughters against the dangers of domestic abuse. Domestic abuse has been declining for the last two centuries; however, it remains prevalent, and if the issue is ignored, it maintains the momentum to once again become part of accepted popular culture. While laws can help to fight domestic violence by lowering the legal threshold of what is considered by the courts to be abuse, a far more important and effective course of action is public media broadcast aimed at changing the publics sentiment towards the issue. The government and those with social influence must co-opt their power to send the message that domestic abuse has no place in modern society. Most recently NFL Commissioner Goodell has come under media scrutiny for what many are calling a lax response and penalization towards Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. Rice was captured on video dragging his unconscious wife, and then fiance, following a physical domestic dispute out of an elevator in an Atlantic City Casino. Rice who pled not guilty to assault avoided a trial by agreeing to enter counseling. Late July the NFL handed down its sentence of half a million dollars and a two day suspension. This to many may seem like a large sum of money and therefore a reasonable punishment. However, when compared to other punishments the league has rendered in response to much lesser crimes, the punishment is considered by many to be nothing short of appalling. The response to the Rice incident is not ideal. It sends a message that has too often been modeled in the pastthat domestic abuse is not an issue to be taken seriously. It sends the message to the public and especially their fan base, that it is permissible. Celebrity has afforded Rice many social benefits, but the ability to batter a woman to the point of unconsciousness without reasonable legal and professional reprimand should not be one of them. Many, including Keith Olbermann, are calling for commissioner Goodells resignation. How the NFL responds will influence the future of its and the publics reaction towards domestic abuse.

Since then however the City of Madison has been progressively moving into a less tenable position. The Predominant view of economists is that the recovery had already started when the audit report dated September 30, 2011, was given. The question to ask is "What has changed in the City of Madison that has created this untenable scal position, since this audit report was given?" Based on audit reports led by the City of Madison, revenue has declined but the City of Madison's expenses have not been constrained to coincide with the declination in revenue. More specically revenues were reported to the Auditor General of the State of Florida by the City of Madison as: September 30, 2010 as $5,434,006. September 30, 2011 as $6,296,047 ($770,141 was grant funds. $5,525,906 of revenue). September 30, 2012 as $5,263,899. During the time frame from September 2011 to September 2012, the amount spent on General Government increased from $430,333 to $525,531 for an increase of $95,198. While the amount spent on Public Safety decreased from $2,198,139 to $1,610,039 for a decrease of $588,100. This shortfall was well documented yet the General Government expenses continued to increase causing the City to deplete is "Contingency Fund." The question to ask is "Were all of these expenses necessary?" There have been numerous employee issues. A few employees have been terminated without due cause and were rehired after consideration of the circumstances by the City Commission. A few employees were given raises and promotions without regard to budgetary constraints. The question to ask is Were these changes necessary for the continued function of the City?" This is only a short list of things that appear to be problems in our City government. In summation, the City of Madison has been faced with numerous issues in the last few years, that all appear to either have been at best preventable and at worst contrived be the person running the City. The last question to ask is "Has the City Manager been a benet to the City or a detriment?" The City Commissioners have received a copy of this letter.

Later, he became a Public Maintenance Inspector with the University of Florida in Quincy. He was a member of the Reapers of the Harvest Church in Greenville. He is survived by his wife, Donna M.

Beggs Funeral Home, Madison Chapel is handling arrangements (850) 973-2258.Ron FallLucile CoffeeRon Fall, born February 10, 1942, who grew up in Pompton Plains, N.J., passed away quietly during the evening hours of Monday, August 4 at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. He did not survive this last three months courageous struggle for his life and was nally able to let go peacefully. He is survived by his wife, Theresa (Terry) Fall, of Madison; his son, Austin D. Fall, of Virginia Beach, Va.; his sister, Helen Hauck, of Hamilton, Mass.; and one niece and one nephew, both residing in Massachusetts. A Navy man in active duty from 1959 to 1963 and forever and always in service to his country, he believed strongly in the Constitution and in what it means to be an American. Having lived in several places in these United States, and nally making his home in Madison for the past 20-plus years, his lifes journey was eclectic at least and adventurous at best; he never hesitated to take the road less traveled and all of those who knew him were better for it. He always had a soft spot in his heart for the plight of the abused, animals and humans alike, and was always ready to help where and when he could. His body is being cremated and there will be no formal services at this time. He would prefer donations of money, bags of food, towels or time be presented to the Wounded Warrior Program, the ASPCA or your local animal shelter as your gift of the celebration of his life.

The company has received 51 reports of the televisions tipping over, but no injuries have been reported. Consumers using the stand assembly should immediately detach the television, place it in a safe location and contact VIZIO for a replacement stand assembly. Even consumers who are using the wallmount assembly should contact VIZIO about replacement for the stand assembly, in case they decide to use it in the future.

Back To School Explosion Takes A Group EffortBy Rose KleinGreene Publishing, Inc.The Sanitation Department begins work before most of us get out of bed. The crew gets an early start (4 a.m.!) to begin their daily clean-up of the city. The crew is made up of one supervisor, Ricky Hudson, who has been with the department for four years; foreman and truck driver James Robinson, at the department for eight years; and two sanitation workers Michael Dupree, who has worked in Sanitation for six years and Edward Baker, who has been lling in for Yeagerd Brincon who is out due to an injury, but with the department 11 years. Hudson supervises Sanitation, but is also responsible for Public Works in the city, and maintains Madison's roads, right of ways, cemeteries, parks and trafc lights. You can also thank him and crew for the beautiful holiday decorations put up, and taken down, every year. Hudson gained his sanitation position by lling in as a sanitation worker when working in a cemetery, eventually working sanitation fulltime before earning his Supervisor's title about a year ago. Hudson says he likes his job and gives some of the credit to foreman, James Robinson, who he says makes sure everything gets done, but also praises the other workers by stating, "I really have a good crew, all of them." Robinson agrees about the other employees saying, "I do have a good crew to work with." Dupree, Baker and himself, work in the city, picking up bagged garbage, leaves and limbs for all its residents. Robinson says what he likes most about the job is the people and that most people are really nice; some even offering them cold drinks on really hot days. Robinson says they all look out for the elderly too, helping them get their trash if they aren't able. When talking garbage, he says most of Madison's residents look out for them by doing what their supposed to do; making sure all their garbage is tied up properly and making sure their waste is in containers no larger than 30 gallons, which he says is in the city ordinance. When asked what the worst thing was about the job, he had a tough time coming up with something and responded with, "I haven't run into anything yet, and I hope I don't." www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday August 13, 2014Madison County Carrier 5 AROUNDMADISONCOUNTY SANITATIONDEPARTMENTCLEANSUPCITYOFMADISON Greene Publishing, Inc.

Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo By Lynette Norris, August 6, 2014Giving away school supplies to hundreds of Madison County school children at the annual "Back To School Stay In School Explosion" takes a lot of generous donors, of course, but it also takes a lot of work to organize all those supplies, pack them into backpacks for each grade level and get them all neatly arranged in their assigned section of the NFCC Fitness Center for the big day, that took place Saturday, Aug. 9, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Wednesday evening, three days before the event, volunteers worked their way through stacks and boxes of brand-new school supplies, getting everything ready. Jerome Wyche, of the Madison Prevention Coalition, said that the volunteers had already been working for about an hour when the picture was taken. More volunteers arrived shortly and helped get everything ready for the event.Senior Center In Need...

By Jessie R. BoxGreene Publishing, Inc.Pastor Greg Ragans, of Mount Olive Baptist Church in Madison, his wife, Margaret and their son, Caleb, along with Janie Reid traveled to Viile Tecii, Romania on a mission trip for ten days from July 14-24. Pastor Ragans and his wife had previously gone to Romania in 2010 and fell in love with the people there. This was not Reids rst mission trip to Romania, but this was her rst trip with Pastor Ragans and his family. In Romania, they stayed with John Fracker, a missionary and his wife Rita. While there, the Ragans, Reid and the Frackers hosted kids and youth clubs and held a womens and mens bible studies. They would worship in different churches every evening and walk down the streets to speak with anyone that wanted and needed some spiritual guidance. Pastor Ragans said this trip was more hands on than the previous trip because after the initial trip they saw what was needed in Romania. Eyeglasses were given to those who needed them. Reid brought kazoos from the U.S. for the children. There were costumes available to the children to depict stories from the Bible. Reids favorite part of the trip was the children. In her spare time, she would spend time with the children and play with them. She was nicknamed Mother Teresa, while she was in Romania. They won my heart, said Reid while talking about the children. Pastor Ragans enjoyed teaching the Word and seeing the growth in the people since his trip in 2010. There is another trip planned for Romania in late December. If anyone is interested in being a part of it, contact Pastor Greg Ragans at (850) 971-5161. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, August 13, 2014 8 Madison County CarrierCHURCH Open 24/7 C h u r c h D i r e c t o r yFirst United Methodist Church (850) 973-6295 Rev.

Light is measured by candles (potential) and watts (power). The only way we can improve this situation is to actually go (not send) and do something to encourage people to look to Jesus. He is still the Answer. (Mat 5:16) Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Mat 25:33) And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Is Jesus really going to do this? YES! Are we going to be held accountable? Absolutely. While many are caught in the trap of the cares of life, this judgment still looms for all. (Mat 25:34) Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: (Mat 25:35) For I was hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: (Mat 25:36) Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. What can we do? TALK IS CHEAP! Get up out of the rocking chair and from in front of the TV (propaganda machine) and visit a sick friend, a neighbor in need, someone in need of Jesus or even us in the nursing homes, hospitals and jails. How long has it been? (Jas 1:26) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain. (Jas 1:27) Pure religion and undeled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their afiction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. Let me take this opportunity to invite Pastors, church members, friends and neighbors to visit the Lake Park of Madison Nursing Home. We love visits from you! www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, August 13, 2014Madison County Carrier 9CHURCH Grace Presbyterian Welcomes New PastorStory SubmittedGrace Presbyterian Church is pleased to announce that Dr. Gary Cox has been called by the Session and congregation to be the churchs new pastor.

They will come in and go out, and nd pasture. 10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:9-10This passage of scripture unfolds during the Feast of Tabernacles. Jesus confronts the illegitimate claim of the Pharisees. The Pharisees claimed to be the rightful shepherds of Israel. They presented themselves as the givers of spiritual life and access to spiritual food. The people of Israel had a history of suffering under the leadership of evil leaders. It is evident in Jeremiah 10:21-22, when the shepherds of Judah refused to whole-heartedly seek God. The shepherds are senseless and do not inquire of the Lord; so they do not prosper and all their ock is scattered. Listen! The report is coming-a great commotion from the land of the north! It will make the towns of Judah desolate, a haunt of jackals. As a result the growth of their nation did not prosper and the people were scattered. In Ezekiel 34:1-6, the shepherds of Israel failed to provide for their ock (people). They slaughtered them for their gain rather than feed them. The word of the Lord came to me: 2Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them: This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to you shepherds of Israel who only take care of yourselves! Should not shepherds take care of the ock? 3You eat the curds, clothe yourselves with the wool and slaughter the choice animals, but you do not take care of the ock. 4You have not strengthened the weak or healed the sick or bound up the injured. You have not brought back the strays or searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally. 5So they were scattered because there was no shepherd, and when they were scattered they became food for all the wild animals.6My sheep wandered over all the mountains and on every high hill. They were scattered over the whole earth, and no one searched or looked for them. In John 10:9-10, Jesus gave the metaphor of a shepherd watching over and providing for his ock. I. In John 10:9, Jesus identied Himself as being the doorway unto almighty God. a. It is through Jesus that believers enter the safety of Gods fold and proceed into the rich pastures of His blessings. b. It is through Jesus, lost sinners can approach a Holy God and appropriate salvation. c. Jesus is the good shepherd that gives spiritual life and access to spiritual foods. d. If we are going to live life abundantly, the quality of our lives must rst change spiritually. We must totally accept Jesus Christ as our savior and trust completely in Him. II. In John 10:10, Jesus ngers the theft. a. The thiefs spirit resides in those who have ill will toward the kingdom of God. b. His purpose is to steal, kill and destroy the lives of people. His greatest gain is to redirect our spiritual destiny, by turning us completely away from God. III. In John 10:10, Jesus reassures believers. a. Jesus reassures believers that He came to give life to all of those who accept Him and He came to give it more abundantly. b. The abundant life is a higher quality of living on earth and a promised heavenly home. c. How do we live the abundant life? First completely submit yourselves to Jesus Christ. This is accepting Him as your personal savior and allowing the Holy Spirit to conform you into the image of Jesus Christ. We must then live a life pleasing unto God. Jesus is the doorway unto almighty God; through Him we will enter the safety of Gods fold and proceed into the rich pastures of His blessings. Within the pastures of Gods blessings, the quality of our spiritual lives will change and we will walk in the promises of almighty God. IV. Conclusion a. Matthew 6:10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Jesus was attempting to change the quality of His disciples spiritual lives. His objective was to make them kingdom focused and encourage them to walk in the promises of Almighty God. b. Jesus taught them to pray in this manner: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Jesus taught them to pray the kingdom of heaven onto earth. The quality of Israels spiritual lives changed. They no longer lifted up their misery from earth to heaven. They prayed that the things of heaven would be unleashed in their lives here on earth. When heaven is unleashed in our lives, we are more than over comers. We will be able to love and help regardless of any situation. www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, August 13, 2014Madison County Carrier 11CHURCH The PulpitHow To Live The Abundant Life Jerry Alexander Church CalendarIf you have an event for the Church Calendar, please email email@example.com or call Rose at (850) 973-4141.
